Software developer based in Manchester, UK


I'm a 22 year old software developer from Manchester. While studying Computer Science at the University of St. Andrews, I've worked with a variety of different clients to help them bring their vision to reality. From iPhone apps to dynamic websites and database design, there's never a challenge I say no to.

In addition to freelance work, I have a passion to develop new ideas and concepts. Most never go public, and most come to me at 3 in the morning, but the experience always goes back into any work I do. Talking of experience, I've had some pretty great opportunities given to me. Working at a major UK bank for 10 weeks in the middle of studying for my degree was both eye opening and rewarding. I learned about the processes in place at large companies, and developed various pieces of software to streamline some of them.

It's not all work though... Living in St. Andrews during term time is the perfect opportunity to play some golf, or just generally freeze during the winter!

CPDme (Case Study) offer a simple way to document your CPD activities to create a professional CPD portfolio. Initially, CPDme were looking for a way for their customers to document on the move. This was realised in the form of a mobile app enabling users to upload evidence and document their learning right from their phone.

After the launch of the mobile app, it was clear that some of the day-to-day tasks of the team (such as generating personalised portfolios) could be made more efficient. To this end, I implemented a web based service to gather every submission for a customer and compile them into one, clear, personalised PDF portfolio that's ready to print.

Feel free to take a look at the free app on the app store.


Delv is a brand new venture that Jamie Gordon and I are working on. We want to tap into the student market and fill a gap we've found.

If you're going on a night out, you want to go to the busiest and most popular event that night. Delv grabs data from a wide range of sources and tells you where everyone's going.

We launched in March 2014 and we've already received an amazing response from our users!


Gamerating is a website I started in November 2009. As the name suggests, it reviews games on a variety of different consoles. Over the coming months, we have plans to revamp the website to focus on a niche not yet covered by the other gaming websites.
